Welcome to the University of Florida Au.D. Website
The University of Florida, home to one of the nation’s leading programs in audiology, welcomes you to our Doctor of Audiology website. The profession of audiology requires scientific and technical knowledge, compassion, and finely tuned interpersonal skills and we strive to nurture each of these areas in our students.
We take great pride in being one of the first universities to offer the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree both on-campus and through distance learning. The University of Florida offers the on-campus Au.D. to students with earned bachelor’s or master’s degrees. For current practitioners, we offer a comprehensive distance learning program tailored to the needs of the working professional audiologist. Over 100 on-campus students and 1,450 distance learning students have entered UF’s Au.D. program since its inception in 1998.
We hope that as you browse our pages, you will gain insight into our program and the profession of audiology. Please feel free to contact the faculty and staff of the program for more information.
